Another late rally propels Lafayette Jeff past Harrison

May 1, 2012
Lafayette Jefferson High School



Lafayette Jeff's baseball team needed just two hits to score four runs in the sixth inning against Harrison, rallying for a 5-2 win on Tuesday in Loeb Stadium.

After a strong performance by Harrison starting pitcher Nick Leuck, who allowed one run in five innings, reliever Payton Smith struggled to find the strike zone in the sixth.

Smith walked five batters and committed a balk, as the Bronchos sent 10 batters to the plate and left the bases loaded.

"He threw the other day and threw well, but obviously he was struggling to find the plate and you have to throw strikes when you come in at in that spot," Harrison coach Bryan Van Zile said.

It was the second consecutive night the Bronchos (7-5, 2-2 Hoosier Crossroads) rallied in the sixth inning to defeat the Raiders.

Jeff first baseman Daniel Nelson started Tuesday's rally with a one-out single and scored the tying run on Nate Franklin's RBI double two batters later.

Austin Albrecht drew a bases-loaded walk, and Jeff scored two more runs on a wild pitch and balk.

"I think the big thing was Daniel starting it off with that big base hit to get people moving a little bit," Jeff coach Scott McTagertt said. "I think we showed little bit of discipline in that inning and let him throw us a few to take advantage of that situation."

Harrison (4-6, 1-3) went down 1-2-3 in the top of the seventh, as Jeff starter Griff Clark pitched a complete game to earn his second win of the season.

"I felt like I got ahead pretty good and was able to get some ground balls and fly balls, and the defense was able to make some plays," Clark said.

Leuck threw 93 pitches in five innings and pitched out of a bases loaded, one-out jam in the fifth inning by forcing a flyout and foul out.

"He was going deep in a lot of counts so I was hoping he could give us five and we'd get him out," Van Zile said. "Unfortunately it didn't work."

Leuck was fortunate not to allow a run in that fifth-inning jam. Jeff's Bailey Perdue could have likely scored easily on the flyout to right field, but left too soon on the tag and had to return to third.

"It wasn't even close," McTagertt said. "That's something you can't do in our conference and be expected to do well in this conference."

Harrison also had a potential rally end due to a baserunning error when Tyler Forbes was picked off at second with nobody out in the sixth inning. Van Zile also lamented some groundballs that he believed could have been converted into outs.

"We had too many mistakes on little things," Van Zile said. "Some of the little things are killing us."

Harrison took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Mike Carnahan's two-out single scored Nick Bartolone, who reached on a two-out triple.

Jeff tied the game at 1 in the third inning when Perdue reached base on an infield single and later scored on the second wild pitch of the inning.

Harrison took a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning when Evan Tislow scored on a delayed squeeze play. The Raiders had runners at first and second with no outs in the inning but couldn't do more damage.
